Wells-next-the-Sea

Primary & Nursery School

Year 2

Staff: Mrs Norman and Mrs Somerton

Maths

This half-term, Year 2 are learning about measuring mass, temperature and capacity. We will think about the units of measurement these use and how to read the different scales. We are also going to be consolidating our methods to add and subtract and how we can use resources to help us.

We will also continue to think about how we know our answers and how we can explain this. 

English

We have started this half-term looking at the incredible book 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. We have found out who Jacques Cousteau was and why he did so much to care for our beautiful seas and oceans. 

After this, to tie in with our 'In The Deep Blue Sea' topic, we will be looking at a non-fiction text and also use Blue Planet to help us as well.

We have daily spelling and reading sessions and also have regular handwriting and reading for pleasure sessions.

Topic

Our topic this half-term is 'In The Deep, Blue Sea'. We have already asked lots of topic related questions we would like to find the answers to and used some of our computing time to research the answers.

PE

Our PE sessions will still be on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon so please can children be wearing their PE kit on those days. They will need school shoes on but trainers to change into. We are restarting woodland sessions again, these will be on a Tuesday, so please can the children come to school in appropriate, outdoor clothing and bring wellies on that day.

Class Dojo

Class Dojo is our main form of communication with parents. We try to post most days and this could be information about your child's learning, reminders or general notices.

Home Learning

A home learning menu will be given out at the beginning of each half term. Your child will need to complete a minimum of 5 activities each half term, handing them in on a Thursday. 

Belongings

Please ensure your child's clothing and belongings are clearly labelled including their woodland kit.
